Summary

Child passenger safety begins when children are born and continues as they grow. Britax manufactured this seat for a child weighing up to 65 pounds. A child's weight and height influenced the location and installation of the seat within the vehicle. The instruction booklet, stored under the seat cover, provided quick access to proper set up requirements.
